Description:

This paper examines how Tang Engineering, Inc. has been offered a potentially profitably contract with a major automobile manufacturer involving the production of a new engine component for Toyda Motor Company. It looks at how Tang Engineering has already conducted an experiment involving the manufacture of prototypes of the engine component that would be produced under the contract and attempts to determine the feasibility of the production of the engine component by the company within the mean unit production time constraint.

From the Paper:

"The key determining factors in the ability of the company to manufacture the engine component within the constraint of a mean unit production time of < 1.5 minutes are lathe speed and drill speed. Tang Engineering experimented with three different lathe speed setting and three different drill speed settings. The matching of lathe speed settings and drill speed settings in the production experiment resulted in five different manufacturing process states, as follows: State 1 (lathe speed setting 1 and drill speed setting 1); State 2 (lathe speed setting 1 and drill speed setting 3); State 3 (lathe speed setting 2 and drill speed setting 2); State 4 (lathe speed setting 3 and drill speed setting 1; and State 5 (lathe speed setting 3 and drill speed setting 3).
Production data were collected in relation to each of the experimental production process states. The data collected were (1) the number of engine components produced in a batch run and (2) the overall time required for the completion of each batch run. These data were analyzed to assess the feasibility of Tang Engineering's ability to manufacture the engine components within the constraint of a mean unit production time of < 1.5 minutes."
